Featuring Sergia Prokofiev's symphonic score, the ballet features familiar characters -- the wicked stepsisters and fairy godmother -- along with the chiming midnight bells and the lost slipper in a full-length evening of music and dancing sure to enchant audiences of all ages.


MSU students with valid student ID will be admitted free. All other ticket purchases may be made online at Tickets are $30; $12 for children.

The Russian National Ballet was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s, when many of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Union's ballet institutions were exercising their newfound creative freedom. They started vibrant companies dedicated to the timeless tradition of classical Russian ballet and invigorated this tradition as the Russians began to accept new developments in dance from around the world.
